Here at Parish, we believe that excellent attendance and punctuality will help all children make fantastic progress. Missing school, means missing learning opportunities and activities that build confidence, friendships and an understanding of where our children ‘fit’ into the world around them.
We recognise that children may be too unwell sometimes to come to school. We also know that sometimes there are other reasons why getting to school can be tricky - we are here to support you in those times.
We closely monitor our children's attendance. When we are worried about a child's attendance, families will get an email or call from our Attendance Lead, Alison Russell. Together, we make a plan, so that your child is on time and coming to school as much as they possibly can. There is a lot on offer to support school attendance; nurture breakfast club, check-ins with school staff, friendship groups, positive books, wellbeing interventions, access to our Mental Health Support Team when needed and so much more!
We believe that being at school every day and on time, when it is possible, makes a huge difference to a child's progress.
